Car Servicing

Servicing your car regularly reduces the risk of essential components on your vehicle failing which could be dangerous or financially costly down the line. A well-serviced car will return better fuel economy and performance and will last much longer than one that is not serviced regularly.

Servicing should not be confused with an MOT test. An MOT test is mandatory by law and ensures your car meets the minimum requirements to be on the road, whereas a service is a thorough check of your vehicle’s components to ensure that they are in roadworthy and safe condition.

At Days Garage Oxted, we offer several levels of car servicing; we can service your car to the same service schedules as a main dealer would follow without infringing any outstanding warranties. We can also service according to our own evaluation of your vehicle and its requirements. If your car does not need a manufacturer specification service, we can offer interim or full servicing, depending on your needs. You can find out more about our servicing here.
